Sensors: The Whole Picture Part Two - business sectors

Sensors: The Whole Picture Part Two - business sectors

It is meaningful to analyse sensors in terms of industries. For example, the miniaturised multi-sensor platforms of mobile phones and smart watches in the consumer electronics industry have much in common with those in the broader concepts of the Internet of Things which is largely focussed on the healthcare, energy and manufacturing sectors.

Supercapacitors replacing small batteries

Supercapacitors replacing small batteries

After a troubled past, the supercapacitor market of around $400 million is beginning to stir, partly because the majority of supercapacitors are now non-flammable, many times the reliability and life of batteries, and non-toxic.

Sensors: The Whole Picture Part One

For the purposes of this report, a sensor as an input device which, as its primary purpose, provides an electrical output (signal). A sensor detects and, where needed, quantifies a specific physical, chemical or biological quantity (input).

Webinar - Energy Harvesting Microwatt-Gigawatt: New Directions

Webinar - Energy Harvesting Microwatt-Gigawatt: New Directions

Materials suppliers need to appraise opportunities at all power levels of energy harvesting. Those developing, making and using harvesters providing microwatts to GW need to see the big picture and how they can expand into it.

Upcoming Webinar on Electronics as Smart Materials

Upcoming Webinar on Electronics as Smart Materials

In this webinar IDTechEx Chairman, Dr Peter Harrop, describes a large new opportunity for added value materials suppliers. Electronics and electrics are moving from components-in-a-box to user "edit-able" composites, stretchable film and even paint.

Why Are We Still Talking About Hydrogen Economy and Fuel Cells?

Why Are We Still Talking About Hydrogen Economy and Fuel Cells?

Once every ten years the promising future of a hydrogen economy and fuel cells is announced. Hydrogen over the years has had several periods of hypes, which always blow off as nothing concrete, but why are we still talking about it? And why is there still the belief of a hydrogen economy, when Li-ion batteries are dominating the market?

Materials Opportunities in Emerging Photovoltaics

Materials Opportunities in Emerging Photovoltaics

Opportunities for new and improved PV materials include those that: Eliminate toxic emission from abuse or inappropriate disposal procedures notably heavy metals Improve physical performance such as transparency, stretchability, load-bearing, long life Permit integration into smart materials such as multi-mode energy harvesting laminates Improve photovoltaic performance such as efficiency, harvesting wider bandwidth Create totally new forms such as photovoltaic paint Are transparent conducting electrodes beyond ITO Act as better barrier layers to improve life Reduce cost
